Is Professional Teeth Bleaching is Right for You
As you age, certain activities you may engage in on a daily basis can stain your teeth or cause discoloration. Regular smoking, drinking coffee, tea, or wine, or even just your day-to-day habits can all put a damper on the brightness of your smile.
And although you may have tried teeth whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes or even over-the-counter treatments, it’s not likely that these products are able to get deep enough into your tooth enamel to remove deep-set stains. As a result, you’ve spent a lot of money for minimal results. That’s where professional tooth whitening comes in.
How Teeth Whitening Can Brighten Your Smile
If you’ve ever seen celebrities shine on the red carpet and wondered how they’re getting that 1,000 megawatt smile, chances are they’re seeing a dentist for a little extra help. A professional tooth whitening procedure done in office is a lot different than what you’ve tried at home, as your dental professional can use stronger solutions for better and quicker results. While individual results may vary, many people see a huge transformation in their smile in just one visit.
How Does Dental Whitening Work?
First, your dentist will professionally polish your teeth, which is not unlike a routine dental cleaning. This will ensure that your teeth are clean and plaque-free. Your teeth will then be coated with a professional-grade teeth whitening solution, and then a laser light will be used to activate the dental whitening process. This is generally left on for 30-60 minutes, depending on what individual requirements your dentist feels you need.
Is the Tooth Whitening Procedure Painful?
Most patients experience no pain at all when it comes to their tooth whitening procedure. However, if you’re fearful or do experience any tingling or pain, be sure to let your dentist know right away. We don’t want you to experience discomfort, and oftentimes where are methods to ensure that you have a relaxing experience.
